I have sharp shooting pains in the area of my bunion. Is this normal bunion pain or nerve pain? How do I relieve this sort of pain?

    HI Julie46674 

    So before surgery I did have shooting pain on the bone right where the bunion was. I like to hike and I really got the pain during that activity. Though sometimes out of the blue I would get the pain even if I was just sitting. I just tolerated the pain but one day as I was coming back from a hike I could not wait to get to the car because of the pain. It was then I thought I had to look into taking care of the situation.

    After surgery, I do not have pain anymore.
